Supporting site characterization and engineering efforts on offshore energy developments worldwide

Founded by geoscientists with extensive operational experience in the US and Europe, the OARS Group provides comprehensive project consulting, data services, and experienced personnel in support of offshore energy developments worldwide.

Focused on quality, the OARS Data Center utilizes the latest in secure network infrastructure for data management. The Data Center has an excellent track record of analysis, quality assurance, and curation of current and archived geoscience data sets for remote access by our clients. To mitigate the significant shortage of experienced field personnel available in the USA due to the rapid growth of the offshore wind market, OARS retains a growing team of dedicated staff for offshore roles. All offshore personnel are actively supported in the field during the course of the campaign.

Our US-based team should be viewed as an integral part of the overall project team, providing program and data management during the course of development through life of field. Our team is available for on-site or remote management across all time zones.
